The easiest way to use a map and compass together is to orient the map towards North. Simply align the map meridians with the compass needle so that “up” on the map is pointing North. Now, everything on the map is in the same direction as in reality. When travelling along your route, keep the map oriented at all times and it’ll be easy to follow your route…
In 1933, a mere 14 years after modern orienteering became a competitive sport, three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering champions invented the liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and easier to use than other compasses at the time, and the SILVA brand was born.
Silva compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world today; their vast experience and knowledge are injected into the design and harsh testing of renowned world-class products.
In 2008 Silva celebrated 75 years in business, moving their HQ to their current base to Bromma Stockholm in 2013.
